Incredible Video Of A Lioness Leaping Into Her Rescuer Man When Reuniting With Him After 7 Years

Sometimes, wild animals amaze us, humans, how friendly and affectionate they can be. Born sensitive, these can sense your love and kindness for them. If they lay their trust in you, you will become a special part of their life. And this time, these animals will show up other aspects of their instinct. They may ask for cuddles and enjoy your attention like cats and dogs. It’s not an easy journey but is worth it.

And, Meg the lioness in this story is an example. The majestic cat shocks the world with her reaction when reuniting with her rescuer man, Kevin Richard, after seven years.

The lioness reached the edge of the pond where her rescuer was. When the big cat realized her human, she leaped into his arm and licked his face. It was such a fantastic scene!

You can watch the incredible reunion of the lioness and her rescuer below!

Meg and Amy (another lion) were left abandoned when they were still very young. Kevin spotted and rescued two cubs in a watery ditch seven years ago. The kind-hearted man then brought them to his sanctuary, Kevin Richardson The Lion Whisper, about an hour northeast of Johannesburg, South Africa.

Kevin thought that the lion cubs would end up in some shape or form in the canned lion-hunting market if they weren’t found and rescued.

Regarding the wildlife sanctuary, it provides a self-sustaining African carnivore sanctuary for the purposes of wild species preservation. Their population has declined dramatically over the past few years due to habitat loss, human-predator conflict, illegal bush meat trade, unscrupulous hunting, disease, and illegal trade. At least, these predators are safe from humans when staying at the sanctuary.

The seven-year reunion of Kevin and Meg is heart-pounding. Many people were scared the female lion would easily hurt or kill the man with her sharp teeth and claws. But she did give her human friend a warm greeting. The lioness didn’t hide the happiness on her face when Kevin reassured and talked to her.

“I know lions on an emotional, personal level.” Richardson believes that hunting these magnificent animals is personal. The video was composed in memory of the late Cecil. “I do not see them as this commodity,” Kevin said.
